Pyralidae

1451 (Brown Knot-horn), Pyla fusca (Haworth, 1811)

Status and ecology:

National Status: Local

Resident and suspected immigrant. In danger of extinction in East Sussex. The moth usually occurs singly or sparingly, although it is sometimes fairly common at mv light on heathland and amongst deciduous woodland. Very thinly distributed in the far west but only recently found at Peacehaven in the east. Single-brooded, flying mainly from late May to early August, occasionally from early May or to late September. The larval foodplant has yet to be determined in Sussex, although heather, bilberry, and related plants have been listed from elsewhere. (Pratt, 2011).
